Attractions[edit]

  • The MBC Dramia located within this gu at Yongcheon-ri, Baegam-myeon. The Dramia features functional reproductions of castles, palaces and even non-elite housing from various periods of Korean history, and thus serves the filming location of MBC's historical dramas, most notably, Jumong, Queen Seondeok, Dong Yi and The Moon Embracing the Sun. When there are no active shoots, viewing tours are available to the public, which include traditional folk games, historical court dress and archery.[1]
